Exchange Congestion and move to 21CN

If I am on 20CN and my exchange is congested (VP issues), I then move to 21CN, does the congestion still apply?

Re: Exchange Congestion

I imagine not since physical rejumpering from DSLAM to MSAN is involved. In fact there is mention in these forums of users on a congested VP being moved to a less congested one (20CN in both cases) to fix peak time speed issues.

Re: Exchange Congestion

Thanks spraxyt.
I am due to be moved onto 21CN this week and although my exchange shows green my D/L speeds are consistently around 6.5Mbs during the day but drop to around 2Mbs in the evening rush hour.
I was therefore hoping the move might alleviate this issue.

Re: Exchange Congestion

Yep,  spraxyt is right there, 20CN and 21CN capacity are managed separately by BTW.

Thanks guys.
My IP Profile is now 12.19Mbs having been ADSL2+ enabled at around 1:30 this afternoon Smiley
I guess I should leave it alone for 10 days before nudging for a PN profile update which is currently 7.15.

Download speed achieved during the test was - 6.61 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 4 Mbps-21 Mbps.

Fibre has been available for over a month now but I'm easing my network into higher data rates gradually Smiley

And your bill into a higher rate as well then  Grin
I feel you should be asking PN for your current line speed to be upped forthwith!

Re: Exchange Congestion

Looks promising.  Smiley
Asking Plusnet to increase your Plusnet Profile to 12.1Mbps will ensure training takes place at the correct transfer rates.
Presumably you still have a 6dB downstream target noise margin. The DLM might try 3dB is error rates are low.

Re: Exchange Congestion

If one of the DC Team is around and feeling like working after last night's disappointment at the ISPA Awards.....could I have my PN profile nudged up to at least 12.1Mbs Smiley

Hi Strat,
I've changed your profile to 12100 on our side, so you should see the change in the next 15 minutes.
